About the Islander
On the Hunt for a Great Novel or Gift
Living on an island, we all know the feeling of frustration when searching for your next good book or a perfect gift, especially when you need it now. You end up sending your hard earned money off the island to big name companies and pay extra for rush shipping to get it here in time.
The Islander Bookshop brings new books and gifts to our island community every season so the selection is always being updated.
You'll find a cozy gift, a gift card, and your next great read at the moment that you need it. Every time you purchase locally you help create the community in which you want to live.
It really is such a gift to witness my kids growing up in a town with a bookstore.
A visit to The Islander Bookshop is a mini vacation for anyone who likes books and coffee.
We love coming to the store. It's our family's favorite place.
